The IRF works with much lower light levels, with and without the pulldown resistor.

I want to increase the speed of the motor. Which means adjusting the constant in the code for PWM.

Difference with the above schematic is: The motor runs away. I just removed the 1k pulldown resistor and the circuit performs the same with the IRF Thanks everyone for replying to my post and giving me such useful information.

This is why you should always have a pullup or pulldown resistor on your MOSFET’s gate if there’s any chance it might be otherwise undriven. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.


Would irf5400 cause damage? Sign up using Facebook. Use something like Ohms if you want to put a resistor there.

Nick Johnson 6, 3 21 Your transistor is getting hot because it is not turning on all the way. Diode in parallel with the dc motor is indeed a good thing. Use the lowest value that meets your safety requirements.

Email Required, but never shown. Well, but irff540 1uF, the highest frequency of PWM could rotate it at half of its max speed. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to help me here. Hi, After spending a lot of time working with the Raspberry Pi in its various guises, I got hold of a copy of Getting Started with Arduino.

Looking at this link I’ve got mine wired exactly the same way.

No inversion and no motor running when the Arduino boots up. In most case motorr is a steady state voltage so timing is not a real consideration. Sign up using Email and Password.

First of all, pins 3 and 7 are reversed look at the pin descriptions. It’s going to be interesting finding out. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. IRF requires 10 volts Vgs to get. I know about heat sinking and current protection circuits but sometimes this still happens.



I found the schematic on the web. I’ll experiment and see what happens. A MOSFET’s gate has extremely high impedance – from hundreds of megaohms to gigaohms ir540 and thus it takes very little current to change the voltage on it. It’s best to add the diode even for a small motor.

Post as a guest Name. You need a pull down resistor on the pin that drives the gate. Would it actually destroy the purpose of controlling motor speed with PWM? I’ve got a 12V 1. R2 will be explained after you correct wiring errors and try again, but is connected to the gate of the mosfet for a reason.
